It's A Hug That Will Melt Your Heart. And The Reason Behind It Is Beyond Beautiful

Wounda the chimpanzee is saying 'thank you' to Jane Goodall for saving her life.
In 2012 they came across Wounda who was gravely ill. She was taken out of danger and nursed back to health at the JGI Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in the Republic of Congo.
And when she was finally released after being nursed back to health, she repaid the kindness by hugging the well-known animal activist after realizing she was free again.
It was a touching moment for everyone involved.
"This is a really exciting moment for me," said Goodall. "Wounda nearly died but thanks to Dr. Rebeca Atencia she came back from the dead. Now she has a will to live and is about to come into paradise."
Goodall watched as Wounda headed back into the lush green vegetation of the Congo jungle.
And months later they found Wounda as healthy as can be, lounging with some friends.
